Gizmodo: The $199 Xbox Arcade will remain on shelves while the refreshed $299 Xbox 360 is released. But, we've received confirmation that the Arcade will be getting a makeover as well.
a transfer cable for $20!? didn't that used to be free, all you needed was a phone call to ms? give me a redesigned arcade for $150 and you've got yourself a customer.
That will probably happen.
Most people will probably buy the cord and sell it to someone else. Also, you can also use a usb drive to transfer your stuff as well!
I'm guessing it will probably look like the Elite.
yeah but probably white... just like a Wii when I think about it :P
it will be white.
So I'm 2 for 3 now? http://n4g.com/news/542715/... If it's 199$ I sure am. Guess my 2 model prediction was right =D Now just to hear this one is getting bundled with Kinect for 299$ and I'll be 3 for 3. Pachter beware!
So they will sell new MS HDDs?
Seems like it since it uses new proprietary drives.
Yeah so... You'll be able to buy a HDD later then? Retailers across the globe are gonna be somewhat upset at all the leftover old HDDs left on the shelves. Maybe the cheaper old model 360s will cause a run on them.
Cool just one thing "KEEP HDD COMPATIBLE" please and thank you. I still have my old one available. Hmm even though it holds all my movies demos and things i may be compelled to buying and new 360 slim but idk. Why new HDD models?
the new xb360 looks cool in pictures i would problably buy it
Now this sounds like a much better deal. I guess MS still has lots of news to share.
... my Xbox 360 is getting traded in. I want that sexy new Black Console sitting right next to it's neighbor the PS3. I be rollin' black on my entire Entertainment System Getup. Suave.
Yup, it will match my black PS3 and my black TV. Plus it's will be quiet and have the same buttons. They'll compliment each other nicely!
hmmmm wonder if i should trade in my 60 gb pro for this also noting it would be the first time i ever done such a thing and wonder how much it will bring down the cost of the 360 250 gb slim
Well a new Arcade would make it more accessible with Kinect. I can see a bundle for $250 still actually. Because if the Arcade is $150 and Kinect is $150 then they knock $50 off the price and you can pick it up for $250. I like the different options honestly. I know a lot of people who got into next gen gaming much sooner because of the Arcade systems. You didn't need much to get one and grab Halo 3 and your good to go for a year or more. So I'm digging the redesign. I just wish they would be easier to get right away. Gamestop is doing a lottery in order to get the right to even buy one.
"will go on sale as a standalone cable for $20." Oh my god. Are you serious? "Hey guys we messed up and built a unreliable console without certain features. But to make it up to you here is a shiny new one with shiny buttons, and new and improved tech that won't overheat. Oh btw your memory cards and HDD won't work, please buy the $20 cable so you can accomplish this." Wow...
